Carbo vegetabilis has a lack of oxygen

In homeopathy, a person with the Carbo vegetabilis condition is someone who finds it hard to think, understand and focus. Their mind is slow, confused, due to its slow and stagnant circulation that impedes enough oxygen getting to the brain.

All their symptoms are due to a lack of oxygen.
They are insensitive, lazy individuals, cold and extremely weak.
The weakness of a Carbo vegetabilis personality comes as a result of having suffered illnesses from which the patient never recovers.
They have high emotional indifference, they are not happy about good news and bad news does not affect them.
Characteristics of a Carbo vegetabilis condition
Poor circulation, the whole body is cold, even the breath is cold. Extremities become blue.
Despite being so cold in the body, a Carbo vegetabilis personality wants to beenergetically fanned; it is as if they need to absorb oxygen to be able to recover.
They suffer from chronic or acute respiratory failure.
They also suffer from flatulence and abdominal bloating, especially after eating to excess or having consumed alcohol.
They have intolerance to alcohol, specifically wine and also fatty foods. Their head/face is red after eating, or drinking alcohol.

  • patients who like to eat, have much bloating and are prone to drinking alcohol
  • the elderly, sick or fatigued that are weakened by a previous illness.
Main indications

Maharashtra to fill 400 vacant doctor’s posts

Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis has asked the health department to fill 400 vacant posts for doctors in the state. 

While chairing a meeting on health infrastructure in the state, Fadnavis said vacant posts, particularly in the state's rural areas, should be filled. He also said local candidates should be given priority in the filling of these vacancies. This will help curb absenteeism, he said. Fadnavis also said services under the Rajiv Gandhi Jeevandayi Health Scheme needed improvement. 

Chemists Strike in Mumbai make patients suffer

Chemist Strike Mumbai
Most chemists in the city downed shutters, as they joined the nationwide strike called by the All India Organisation of Chemist and Druggists (AIOCD) to protest against the online sale of drugs.  Although the state Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had assured a steady supply of medicines, many people suffered and had to travel long distances to buy essential medicines.
Santacruz resident Sandhya Panaskar travelled across the western suburbs to get medicines for her one-year-old. “We went to VN Desai Hospital, where they examined my child and gave one of the two drugs prescribed by the doctor. The second drug was not available at the hospital,” said Panaskar, who went to at least 10 chemist shops, only to find them shut. “We got the medicine only in the evening,” said Panaskar.
About 6.5 lakh chemists across the country went on a strike, claimed AIOCD officials. 
Health care experts said e-pharmacy cannot be overlooked, as most hospitals are adopting the concept. “Many health care professionals and hospitals have started giving e-prescriptions to ensure accuracy and make it a part of their electronic medical records,” said Dr Ashish Tiwari, CEO, Zynova Hospital, Ghatkopar.
The state FDA officials said the strike did not affect patients, as pharmacies in hospitals were functioning. The Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) had formed an expert committee in order to look into the feasibility of online pharmacy for medicines in the context of the current guidelines and regulations.
